PRO-NOX Analgesia Newport Beach
We are pleased to offer our patients an FDA cleared pain relief option during specific medical and aesthetic procedures, called Pro-Nox. This is a safe analgesic gas that is 100% self-administered by the patient during a procedure. Pro-Nox is a 50/50 combination of Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen that is inhaled through a gas delivery system. It helps to relieve pain, stress and anxiety that may be associated with certain procedures. It is comparable to “laughing gas” in that it provides an overall reduction in discomfort by inducing a more calm and euphoric state of being. With Pro-Nox, the patient choses how much or how little they inhale according to their desired comfort level and therefore they do not fall asleep or lose consciousness from the analgesia. The effects of Pro-Nox quickly taper off within 10-15 minutes, allowing the patient to safely drive themselves afterwards. This makes it an ideal pain relief option without downtime or restrictions.
